The project

Connect&GO will be providing RFID solutions at the popular Owl’s Head ski resort this season. Skiers will be able to purchase their passes online or on-site and receive an RFID pass to use for the duration of their visit. The RFID passes will be scanned for access control at the gates for the ski resort chair lifts. Guests will have their passes scanned at portals, or with handheld scanners operated by resort staff. This additional security measure provides the ski resort operators with a detailed overview of who is at the ski hill and which access points are the busiest.

The Connect&GO RFID cards will be available for purchase on-site at the ski hill registration desk. Using the barcode they received at the time of online purchase, guests will scan at the self-serve dispenser (provided by Brite4) to receive their RFID card. The connected card can also be used to make cashless purchases at the ski resort. Guests can load funds directly onto their RFID card, to be debited with each on-site purchase.

Each time a guest scans their pass, the interaction is recorded within the Connect&GO dashboard and saved as data that can then be extracted into detailed and informative consumer behavior reports.
